Things You Should Know About Me...

By Claire Enos

I wasn't sure what I was going to write for this blog post, since I've been so busy with NaNoWriMo (btw, already WAY behind on that!) and school. So, I did some research on the internet, trying to find some ideas. Found this post and decided to use one of her ideas. Many of you don't know me very well, and I'm pretty sure I'm the youngest blogger on this blog, so here goes!

Things you should know about me if we're gonna be BFF:

I am only 4'10 1/2" (yes, I am a shorty)

My blonde friend is 6' and my dark haired friend is 5'6-5'8 or something
like that, if that gives you any idea of how short I am! (I'm in the black
jacket!) [Taken January 2012]

I have been an aspiring writer as long as I can remember, and I've been writing since I was 13 or 14, though I do have some books I wrote when I was in Elementary School for class assignments!

I couldn't live without my family, I love them all and they are more important to me than my friends or education. So if I ever had to choose between my friends and my family, don't be surprised if I choose my family first!

My mom is in the middle, my dad is behind her. My 11 year old brother is
back left, 12 year old brother back right, 16 year old sister front left,
19 year old sister front middle, and I'm on the front right.


When I was a kid I loved moving! Now, I love the mystery of the move and the anticipation, but I hate the packing and unpacking of it all.

I am the oldest of 5 children. My siblings are: 2 girls, ages 19 and 16; and 2 boys, ages 12 and 11.

I'm the one sitting down. My 19 year old sister is the one with the badge
and walky talky, my 16 year old sister has the toy rifle, my 12 year old
brother is on the right, and my 11 year old brother is on the left.

I would rather read, write, sing, and dance than do any sort of household chore, but I hope to one day be a stay at home mom! (Yes, that is contradictory, I realize that!)

I just turned 21 a couple weeks ago, but I still feel like a teenager. (And look like one!)

I am an English major (creative writing emphasis) with a minor in Psychology. However, I am thinking about switching my minor to two clusters (half-minors) in Vocal music and Family History Research.

I go to school at BYU-Idaho, which incidentally has been my dream school for as long as I can remember! So, essentially, I'm living out all my dreams right now.

Me (in the pink sweater) with a few friends this last spring on a
wall that says Brigham Young University- Idaho. This is up by
the Rexburg temple.

I've been singing in choirs since I was 8 years old (at church and in school). Currently I'm in Women's Glee at BYU-Idaho. I asked my mom recently and she says I've been singing practically as long as I've been talking! Needless to say, I couldn't live without my music!

I still don't have a Driver's License and have no plans of getting one anytime soon! I prefer walking, riding a bike, or catching the bus when I need to get places.

I've lived all over the Western United States. Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, and Nevada. And I've been to the Grand Canyon in Arizona, and to Disneyland in California.

One day, I hope to be married in the Temple (which one doesn't really matter)

Last, but definitely not least, my favorite candy bar is, and always has been, Idaho Spuds.

I'm sure I missed some things, and I'll remember after I publish this but oh well. I hope you enjoyed this little (and simple) post! What should I know about you? Post your own in the comments! Or post a link to your own post, if you decide to do your own. I'd love to read them!
